    Am I a philistine for thinking these are garbage? That last one just appears to be a lamp.

    I’ll let the first one off the hook since we can’t really see what it is, maybe it’s not garbage at all.

    Just about anything can be art these days. Almost anything can be imbued with meaning. Almost anything can be an installation. Almost any group of stuff can be said to be curated.
    So art is everywhere?…maybe.
    But let’s not forget the fabled emperor and his carefully curated clothes.

    Ok, so all I see is a tinny shed, a scaffold erection of sticks, a cage on a wall, a lamp and a few screens

    But isn’t it great that not everyone is like me?

    It takes all sorts to make Ireland unique and special
    And I congratulate all the graduates and wish them well
